Community Programs & Services: Centre for the Arts

Spiral Garden

Spiral Garden is an integrated outdoor art, garden and play program that has been integral to Bloorview Kids Rehab since 1984.

This innovative program, staffed by artists, brings together children ages 6 to 12 with and without disabilities from the community and Bloorview to:

  • Explore self and collective expression through a variety of art media
  • Nurture our relationship to nature through tending our organic garden
  • Foster an inclusive community that gives attention to the whole person.

The Fountain of Youth is a natural extension of Spiral Garden.  Participants who have reached the age of 13 spend half their time developing their own creative process – individual or group – and the other half assisting others. The time spent in this supporting role can be counted towards the community service hours required for their high school diploma.

Spiral Garden programs are offered on a fee-for-service basis. For information about how to apply, please contact Skye Gross.
